This is the costume the phantom wears in the lair scene from the time Christine wakes up in his lair, when she pulls his mask off, when he bears his soul to her, and when he finally returns her to the ground above. Besides Masquerade I believe this is the most colorful costume the phantom wears, to me this is his most ornate. It's also the second hottest costume his first being during the title song and music of the night.
